Managing Director
Kevin Kennedy

Kevin has been the Managing Director of The Peccadillo Theater Company since shortly after its founding in 1994. He has produced more than two dozen shows in that time, including the long-running Off Broadway hit, Room Service, and Counsellor-at-Law (winner of the 2005 OBIE award, two Lucille Lortel awards and three Outer Critics Circle nominations). Other Peccadillo productions of note include Dorothy Parker & Arnaud d’Usseau’s The Ladies of the Corridor and the original musical, The Talk of the Town, a show which played in the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel for more than fifteen months. The Talk of the Town began touring nationally in March of 2010.

In addition to working with Peccadillo, Kevin has also produced The Last Will and Testament of Quentin Crisp with the legendary Quentin Crisp and Penny Arcade, True Confessions of a Go-Go Girl, later made into a Lifetime movie, and Cirque Jacqueline by Andrea Reese.  In association with Jonathan Reinis & Z Space Studio, Kevin co-produced Josh Kornbluth's Love & Taxes and, in association with Jay Harris of the Weissberger Theater Group, produced the New York City premiere of Arrivals by Canadian playwright David Gow. Most recently, he joined forces with Kurt Peterson & Edmund Gaynes to produce Jim Brochu's Zero Hour (winner of the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance). Kevin is a graduate of the Commercial Theater Institute (C.T.I.), a 14 week seminar dedicated to training commercial theater producers.

Originally from Forest Hills, NY, Kevin is also Associate Professor of Philosophy at St. John's University in Queens and Assistant Chair of that university's philosophy department. Kevin obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, N.Y. and his Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America. He is the author of numerous articles on American philosophy and metaphysics. Most recently, he edited a volume of the scholarly journal, TOPOI, on the topic of philosophy and theater.
